The position taken by the country on Ihe
salary increase by the last session of Con
grcss Is evidence of the advance made by
public sentiment, and of the general pro
gresslon towards u more refined and elevated
standard of morality.
It Is 11 matter for strong congratulation
that this Idea of moral elevation is growing
into polities, rive limes Congress lias
raised Us ovv 11 salary and each time made It
apply to the euiicnt Cougiess, and tlietu
was nothing said by the people on the sub
ject, until the experiment of lust winter,
vv lien the whole country was swept by a
tciiiicst ot Indignation.
Several circumstances conti United to this
result. After years of unobserved moving
forwaid by the nation, like mi army silent

campaign was Inaugurated, hi which an at
tempt was made to form 11 party based

true, really no contest on this point Kach

axioms, anil at the clineluslon of tho con.
test they glowed with tho light thrown up
on them by tho comments of tho newspaper
press on both sides. Hoth patties became
pledged to uiisclllsh and economical Icgls-
lutlon. Such legislation was ndmltttcd 011
ult hands to be needed, for w e hud an enor
mous national debt to pay, mid tuxes were
correspondingly heavy. These were tho
points to which nn already progressing pub
lic sentiment had advanced, w hen 011 the
llrst Monday In December the hwt session
of the 42(1 session of Congress began. In
accordance with public expectation a bill
was Introduced lo cut off the franking
privilege from members of Congtess. This
looked like refoim Indeed, and beginning

The hill passed, mid though It did not take

It would go Into operation on the llrsl of

should not tcstore the franking privilege,
and as this would be a considerable yciuly
saving to the country, theie wasnodlsposl
lion lo cavil on nice points. Hut just at
the end of tho session the country, lo lis
utter amazement, observed 11 determina
tion on the part of both republicans and
democrats to reward themselves substan
tially for their honesty and economy hi
taking away the franking piivllege f 1 out

voting enough to supply the loss of Ihe
franking privilege to Hie succeeding Con
gross, and 11 million to the Congress pass

expensive franking piivllege. The llid
Congress had 11 legal right to vote Itself
that million at the end of the session to
cany home. The members had a legal
right to raise their salary II fly per cent,
for Ihe futuie, though gieenbacks weie

Interest in the famous duelling corps ex

almost as far buck ns the foundations of
Ihe Lnlvci-sllics oT Ihe elector Itiipetl I.
In the year lilHH. They were at Hist com
posed iff nil the best and noblest among
Hie students, now, however, lliey no longer
hold the rank the once did, but are looked
on, even by some of their incnibcis, ns

the general honor iff Heidelberg In some
remote way depends. .Many strange cus

not Ilic least curious of which. Is the way

belonged, healing torches, and followed by
lepresentatlves from each iff the other corps.
On reaching the burial ground which is sit
uated at 11 short distance from the town, 11
'chorale' is sung by the whole company,
but no sooner Is the collln lowered Into the
grave, than the hymn Is changed into one
of the noly drinking songs in which these
students excel. Without liny religious cer
emony the grave Is dosed, and the cortege
marches back to Ihe town whete they again
halt on the L'nlverslta-ls-I'latz, and form
into 11 large ciicle. Two ot the best
swordsmen then go through the sword ex
ei else, after which, wilh n loud shout, all
the torches are thrown high in the air, so
that they fall together in .1 hunting pile in
the centre of the circle. The ceremony
thus brought to 11 dose, the corps retire to
their" respective places of rendezvous, In
one of the numerous taverns In the town,
and the lest of the night is passed In car

10.VN Oi-ki:i:. It appears from n statement
made by the ltev. C. II. Spurgeon nt the
Meli-oiiolitmi 'I'abi-i-iniele, that helms had 11
tempting oiler lo pay 11 visit toAinetiea.
The following is Ids version of the mailer:
"1 will just tell you one little thing that
happened to me this arternoou. I had a
letter from u gentleman well known In
America, giving me this offer 48,'!, 000 lor
tvjenty-Hve leetiiics -that N, 800 for each
lectuae. On these lerius the twenty-five
nights would give 1110 X.iOOO, and hi a him
died nights I should have C100.000. He
sides tins, I should be allowed lo lecture as
many more nights as 1 chose, so that I
might hi the couisc of n year be woith
X'1U,000, and no doubt the persons who tin
dei take this would earn ten times the
amount. 1 have nothing to do but to leave
you for 11 year and c onto home w Ith (.'20,-
000 or -10,000, while if I slay licit-1 shall
have nothing like that. What do you sup
pose was my answer to Ibis oiler? "I wrote,
'If you were to multiply that offer by one
hundred times, and again 11 hundred times,
1 should feel it as easy to decline as 1 do
now when I say that I cannot cross the
ocean to lecture upon any subject what
ever. I am 11 minister of 'the Gospel, and
never lectured for money, and do not In
tend to do so now ; and if my people- can
not support me it is 11 pity. 'Some people
would say, 'Why not go over to America
nnd get the money to build the toHi-go''
1 shall not to do so because 1 would not do
one thing to ilegradt huelf nor disgrace
you. I shall not make any 'appeal to anoth
er country to do what you can nnd ought
to do. 'lhetenre two hi others here to
night who have received oilers rreim Amer
ica. Kach man can lecture as well as
preach, and there-is no harm in their having
CfiOO and a month's holiday. If I were in
their positlun I should do the same thing,
but us I am 1 cannot leave you. I cannot
leave the college nor the orphanage, not if
inyhou.se were lillcd with silver' and gold
fiom lop to bottom. Theie are two things
which I should feel if 1 went to Aineiic-'a.
The llrst Is that I should go, not In preach
the Gospel, but to lecture, and I cannot do
that, not for the national debt." f l.iver

The congregation which assembled at the
Hrooklyn Academy iff Music, yesterday,
numbered little short of 1,000 persons, ifie
buildlng being packed in every p,u t aisles,
orchestra and private boxes being crowded
as well ns the regular seals. The congre
gation included many who nie not tegular
attendants at the Academy or any other
place of worship, nnd who "came yesterday
to bear the arguments of Hey. T." De Witt
Tahnazo In favor of tho use of the Hllile in
tlie public schools.
The expulsion of tho Hible would decide
that a great multitude of childien should
hav no religious culture. The Hible lit
terferes .h n man'' Ight, and Its expul
sion would be -iuj, ,.u 'he conscience of
men. Tho rigut to'take il o t of the pub
lic schools implies-'Hif right to take out any
other book that acknowledges God, The
Hible Is a supremo hook from supremo In
siibutlon, and has a right to be introduced
a lywhert. It expulsion from Ihe public
schools, there i.-e, would bo nothing short
of dishonoring the Almighty. Ceiiuniftn
school education, said the preachers, Is a
creation of Protestantism. It is stated that
the Catholics will at some time demand a
petition of the public funds for their schools.
It would be better to let the public funds
go lo them, and have the common schools
depend for support and maintenance on
tlio charity of the Christian church, than
that the Hible should bo taken from the
children's hands. Y. 1". Timet, 'iStu

ta 1. C.vmw. A person was recently con
victed in London of "a gross, e and
most atrocious libel" 011 his own niece, by
scniling her a postal card containing nn ac
cusation of Immoral conduct, for which ho
was sentenced lo two years' hnpiisoninent
and a line of two hundred and fifty dollars.
The young woman was one of eleven 1 hil
drcn, and at the time, cm account of the
Ill-health ol her lather, was suppoiting
herself by working In a icpectablo re
freshment room. Tho uncle had written
her an ordinary letter on the subject, and
iiflcrwaid sent her the postal card, thus
maliciously and cruelly conveying to her
associates anil employers his'own unjust
suspicions. The result was that the gill
lost her place, was brought into dlsesleein,
and, if the charge had been title, would
have been prevented ever from associating
with Holiest women. The Judge who
passed the sentence coinp.iied the act of
the ptlsoner to robbery with needless vio
lcnte, and regretted that the law did not
permit lilui to order the rascal to be flogged.
GoviutSMUNT H.vii.uo.viH. The exper!
incut of running railroads by government
agency has not proved successful hi Can
ada. KxpciW-s exceed tho income, and In
creased taxation Is likely to ensue. In
Nova Scotia last year the expenses of Ihe
several lines showed an actual loss to the
government of iJlO.-lSIi. In New Ilruns.
wick the profits were $08,212. In ollie-r
words, on mi Investment iff .-jl2,000,000,
the government icallzed the scanty sum iff
iJfi7,7G0. Vet the people of Canada, un
dismayed by the prospect, have authorized
tlie Canada I'aetlle Company to expend
if lfiO.OOO.OOO for a new- Inler-'colonlal rail
road. Astonishing as It may seem, the
Canadians believe that rallroa'ds ought to
be run, prhnailly, for the uceoiuinodaUoii
of tho jiublle, and not to make money.
This novel Idea 1ms not reached our railroad
magnates. No courtier has ventured to
suggest it to King Tom Scott or Commo
dore Vnndorbilt. Its mention would para
lyo tliiir Intellect, and leave them ns be.
wildcrt'd as was Louis XIV. when told that
the people of Prance were not created for
